What are your wattage ratings for the Sony? Room size, volume you listen at. All things that make a difference.

Hopefully I can get pointed in the right direction by the JBL crew here. I have had my Studio 310's for years now, and have served me very well. I have S310's up front, S-Center, S36's as rears and Polk Studio 50's for my surrounds (just added them this year). I "think" I am wanting to upgrade, that bug is hitting me, but I don't know. I have read quite a bit of reviews on the JBL 580/590's and wonder if it is a true upgrade for me, or maybe a lateral move with just a newer speaker. I have enjoyed JBL sound for many years, and would love to stick with them if they are still producing good products in the consumer lineup. Or am I better just staying with my 310's if they are still bumping along for me?


My current setup is Denon x4300 (driving surround back) and Atmos, Marantz amp driving front, center and surrounds. SVS sub. Room is 21' x 20', open on left side. My listening is 99% movie, 1% music.


Would love for someone to either go "if you like what you got, it's not really that much of an upgrade" or "OMG man, you should of upgraded years ago, you are really missing out of some quality sound" (I guess the other or ".. is you should really look at another manufacture as the consumer line has gone down for JBL"). As we start moving into the holidays, I may be looking for some deals if I need to. Thanks.

I have never heard your current JBLs, but their time period was during some of the bleakest years of JBL consumer products. I would have to assume that the Stuido 5 series would outperform your series 3 since they are compression diver/waveguide technology and part of the Syntheisis line. Give them a shot....it's only money

Thanks Molon, that is information that i needed to know. I appreciate the help and will start looking to go with either of them. I'm not sure the 590's will give me more based on what I already have with my setup, but will audition them to see what they can do.

Good Luck auditioning them, unless you know someone with them. Or just buy them and if you want to, sell them if you don't like them.

The JBL S3xx series speakers were a cut above the N and E Series, especially in the use of a real Ti tweeter (made in France I believe) and some other technical advantages. However, they are of significantly lesser capability than the Studio Series 5xx speakers.

As an old goat, I have more expensive stuff in my collection now, but having heard your speakers and Studio Series 5xx, I would jump on the 5xx especially at some of the prices I've seen lately.

JBL has had some gems. One of my favorites were the XPL 200 from the early 90s.

You must be bored or grass is greener syndrome

You have most of the JBL speakers already why do you want to switch, what are the JBLs lacking doing that you do not like? People that have heard some other very good speakers put the Studio 500 up there with other highly regarded speakers. Unless you want more "highs" then the Klipsch might give you that. Looking at the FR of them I don't think I would like them as I prefer a more laid back speaker on the high end as I find brighter speakers to be fatiguing. In that review he compared the Klipsch to Revels and Revels and JBL will have a more similar sound signature as both use the Harmon philosophy from what I have seen Floyd Toole and John say over in the speaker shootout thread when asked about them.

"There's no doubt that the F206 sounded more neutral, especially with voices; dialogue and singing always sounded smooth and natural. However, the F206's treble sounded a little soft, especially after hearing the Klipsch system.
I don't have much to complain about with the RP-280FA, other than that the subtle brightness can be a bit much with certain snippets of certain recordings."

That is from a review of the RP-280FA which I am assuming are the same other than the Atmos speakers, but I could be wrong.

http://hometheaterreview.com/klipsch...viewed/?page=2

I think you would be down grading(side grade at best), just my opinion based on what I have read about Klipsch and JBL and peoples opinions on how each sounds. Unless you like a brighter speaker then they the Klipsch might sound better to you than the 590s.

The last Klipsch I owned were the RF 82, RB 81, and RC 62. I was glad to see them go....didn't take long at all after getting them to form a disdain for them. I bought them because I owned some Klipsch from the early 90s that were nice speakers. The current Klipsch are not the Klipsch of yesteryear in my humble opinion. I am a fan of the Studio 5 series.

Well, I made the jump with the Newegg deal on the 590's. Got my order placed and have a friend that will be happy to take the S310's. I have to say they served me well for my main fronts for many years. I am excited to get the 590's and see what they can do. I appreciate the help and comments on the 590's. The wife is just as excited, which makes big purchases so much easier. We both truly enjoy watching movies at home and look forward to them arriving. Hope shipping doesn't take forever.

come on now, you trying to kill my wallet in a matter of 24 hrs. I need to check some measurements when I get home, and if all is good, may as well add it to my purchase. I have a gut feeling I'm good, but always like to double check.

With all the folks who purchased the 580s and 590s, this deal may go quickly. You should just get it while available. Good luck.

I agree. But it needs to hold out a couple more hours for me to get home. Is this 2 way 520C better than my existing 3-way S-Center speaker? The S-Center has dual 5.5" with a sensitivity of 91 dB. The 520C is a 2-way 4" cones with 88dB sensitivity. Seems the specs are very different, but it could still produce a better sound?

There is no way I can possibly answer this. I will say that you should try it, as you will have matching compression drivers across the front.

Given that this speaker is very hard to come by as of late, for anything under full retail, you would have a very easy time selling it. Secondary markets are selling this thing for a fortune. I would anticipate this speaker to soon be no longer obtainable, sitting in a grave along side the 530 bookshelves. I almost bought a couple extras, to sell them later, but decided it was not worth the hassle.

lol.. fine, you talked me into it. I ordered them and will give them a listen. From what I have heard of the 590's, if it's as smooth and easy on the ears as those, it will be a huge improvement. I can easily do a comparison with them, but I believe the 590's are going to make the most dramatic improvement.

Neweggflash shows the JBL 520, at the top of the listing, that it will be available for 7 days (Tues). Good luck folks.

I guess I will be the first to have all Studio 5 series in a 11 channel Atmos/DTS:X setup. I may be moving in the near future, so my beloved 4722's will be sold. I now have (4) 520c that will be used for Atmos. I know its a bit unorthodox but my ceilings are low and angled so the narrow profile of the center speaker fits my room better than a bookshelf. I also ran the 520c as a center speaker so I know how well it blends and it's rather cable for a little guy. It held its own with the 590s as a center speaker in my living room, so it should handle Atmos duties crossed at 100hz all day long.

I have been looking hard at some JTR 3-way offerings for my dedicated room for L/C/R. The 4722s are also still in the running for L/C/R, but I am starting to also think my room isn't big enough for those monsters. The 590s at this price also seem like a pretty attractive offering. I could put seven of them on the floor for less than 2 JTR 3-ways. That leaves a pretty nice budget to triple down on subs. Are the 590s really that good?

The 4722's are better but the 590 is a good speaker. I will make you a good deal on the 4722's with upgraded CD and deliver them. How far back do you sit? I may be moving in the near future with the intention on downsizing substantially, that is why I went with the Studio 5 series. I needed to get them before they are forever gone.

How much might you want for the 4722's? I live in NY.

I don't have boxes, so local pickup or close delivery is all I can do.

I did see that when I was on the site and the more I thought about it, the more I felt like there were maybe 5 in stock (always my luck), and once they were gone, that was it. Sale is for 7 days, but you never know how many is in stock. So I ordered it to feel better and not be "out of luck". I measured when I got home and all was good with height and depth, along with width (by about 2"-3"). So all is good. I even received a tracking number already on the center, nothing on the towers yet.


Thanks guys!

Please check back and let us know how you like your speakers. I can't wait to get my center to complete my 3.1. So far, I am very happy with my 580s!

I'm in Pac NW; too far to deliver. If I were still in Dallas that would be a tempting offer.

I will be more than happy to report back. I also have some SVS Prime Elevation speakers for my Atmos to setup at the same time. They will be setup for front height. It will be a totally new sound stage for us to enjoy. Come on Fex Ex driver!

590's are on sale again at Newegg.
I sure don't need them but tempted with the kudos they've been getting..
